Welcome to 'Abduction on a Budget'

This game is a 2D platformer about cooperation. Made by the Fire Otters team for the GMTK Game Jam 2021.

The aliens have arrived, but their abduction system is out of order! Play as a juvenile alien, tasked by the others in his ship to go fetch some humans - needing to hang from a length of rope to reach them.

The game is single-player or co-op two-player. WASD controls an alien spacecraft, while arrow keys control the smaller alien - who can swing or climb on the rope. They're vulnerable to damage, so be careful with how you approach the dangerous terrain of Earth.
